Previous Expeditions

Piyali Basak an Indian mountaineer is going to represent our country in an international expedition to Mt.Annapurna 1(8091m) from 25th March to 25th April, 2021 , it is the 10th highest peak of the world it is very technical and challenging peak. Even fewer climber attempts Annapurna than K2.Summit count till date Mt.Everest- 6,971 , K2- 385, Annapurna- 204. She write”since I have taken a total personal loan of Rs.19 lakh , in which Rs.8 lakh is for Mt.Manaslu (8163 meter) expedition 2018, 8th highest peak of the world and Rs. 11 lakh for Mt.Everest (8848 meter), 2019, she will not able to take more loans. Otherwise , I would have taken a personal loan this time as well, I am not reluctant to do my duty to take our country forward and to increase the respect of our country . So the earnest request to you if any corporate body wants to help in this expedition is very beneficial for our country .”The ultimate challenge for any climber!Climbing Annapurna 1 (10th highest in world)Height is not the only factor to consider when climbing a mountain. Annapurna 1 (8,091m /26,545 ft) is a prime example of this, as it has the least number of ascents of any high peak in Nepal and possibly the world. This mountain is for the strong – hearted and should only be attempted by highly experienced climbers. Storms, avalanches and looming glacial slopes make this an extremely difficult and dangerous mountain to climb. South Face is said to be the most dangerous climb in the world. You will need your wits about you and an enormous amount of courage to consider this climb.The famous mountaineer George Mallory when asked why do people risk their lives to climb mountains? He replied, “Because it’s there,” Annapurna 1 is located in the Himalayas in the north of Nepal that includes 13 peaks over 7000m/22,970ft and 16 peaks over 6000m/19,690ft. The entire Annapurna Massif is 55km/34 miles long and is to the east of Kali Gandaki Gorge, the deepest gorge in the world. The following list of peaks highlights the enormity of this range: Annapurna I (Main) 8,091m, Annapurna II 7,937m, Annapurna III 7,555m, Annapurna IV 7,525m, Gangapurna 7,455m and Annapurna South 7,219m.In Sanskrit the words Anna and Purna mean “full of food”. For climbers it may mean satisfying a deep desire and hunger to face the ultimate challenge. It was summited by Maurice Herzog on June 3, 1950, three years before Hillary and Tenzing Norgay climbed Everest. The usual route to this summit is achieved by establishing three camps and usually follows the West Face and Northwest Ridge, although it has been climbed by different routes.

As a girl mountaineer I faced many obstructions from our society but still I never retreat, I overcome all the social obstructions and go ahead with my mental strength and love for Mountaineering.

I never had reached my goal as per my ability as our financial condition is not good even some of my ability was wasted due to our financial problem but all these experiences built me as a tough mountaineer.

so I am praying for your kind cooperation and any one who can help getting corporate sponsorship are most welcome so that I can materialize the mission successfully and make my country proud as well as inspire citizens and girl child’s parents.

Without support from your end I can’t proceed further to reach my goal.

Waiting for your kind favorable consideration and early reply. Thanking you,

Yours faithfully
